New Data from Cardlytics: Atlanta One of the Most Romantic Cities in the U.S.

What: With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Cardlytics, an Atlanta based data analytics and digital advertising company, looked at how we spend on the “most romantic day of the year.” The company also researched the most and least romantic cities in the U.S., with Atlanta ranking #13 on the nation’s most romantic cities.

  • More people are shopping online for their Valentine each year
